The "So What?": A later entry on the International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness 2011 pro contest schedule, the Tijuana Pro Bodybuilding Championships is the final 2011 Olympia-qualifying event of the season. As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report," with Top 3 placings at earlier contests, some of the athletes have already qualified to take on Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend, while others need this last shot to jump in next week's mix with IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson, IFBB Pro Phil Heath, IFBB Pro Dennis Wolf, and IFBB Pro Branch Warren (winner of the Arnold Sports Festival's 2011 IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships).

Andrew Oye's Verdict: The pre-competition favored contestants include Ed Nunn (who already qualified for the Olympia at the Dallas Europa SuperShow, won by IFBB Pro Toney Freeman, and at the Phoenix Pro Championships, won by IFBB Pro Troy Alves) and Marcus Haley. Polish powerlifter Robert Piotrkowicz will the bring the mass to Mexico, as will the Lithuanian beast Robert Burneika -- who I've heard might also pursue MMA mixed martial arts fighting in the near future. But first, Burneika wants to compete in the upcoming "Super Bowl of bodybuilding" and try to follow the path of greats like 8-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Ronnie Coleman and 6-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Dorian Yates.
